CABN is excited to announce that we are currently collaborating with the traditional owners, the Kabi Kabi people, and Queensland Government to enhance the iconic 102 km Cooloola Great Walk in the Fraser Coast Region, Queensland.
The proposed Cooloola Great Walk Ecotourism Project will offer a new experience in the area and bring new visitors to the Cooloola Great Walk, an existing walking and camping trail between the Noosa North Shore and Rainbow Beach.
CABN has consulted extensively with the Kabi Kabi people, the Traditional Owners of the land, on all aspects of the proposed project from site locations to cultural monitoring and curating the visitor experience. CABN’s team has undertaken a cultural learning journey in partnership with the Kabi Kabi, spending hundreds of hours on-country to listen, walk, and understand what matters to the Kabi Kabi people.
Each site for the proposed off-grid, eco-friendly CABNs has been carefully considered and selected in partnership with the Kabi Kabi and the Queensland Departments of Environment and Science and Tourism, Innovation and Sport to minimise the accommodation’s ecological footprint, respect cultural heritage, and allow visitors to enjoy an area of astounding natural beauty.
The eco-camps will be carefully designed to be as low-impact and sustainable as possible, following detailed environmental assessments on the ecology and biodiversity of the region.
